This text presents the results of the research on participation and women\'s identities in funk and hip hop youth cultures in São Paulo, from the perspective of the social markers of difference. While making a brief and interested historical recovery of how the two cultural expressions developed in Brazil, I talk about the participation of women in these scenes, commonly treated as masculine. Then, recurring themes among women who\'ve been close to are addressed issues, as peripheral identity, the relationship with different womens activism and feminisms, the way they think about sexuality and eroticism as women, mostly black women, and how they address gender and sexual-affective relations in their artistic performances and also on their daily lives. Throughout the text, similarities and differences are highlighted between the two groups, and our joint experiences are situated in a broader discussion about feminisms, gender relations and sexuality that are gaining visibility.
